Transcript of AVANT GARDEN
The positive by-products and benefits of the primarily filtration system of the EatMe Wall are as follows:
1) Variable plant growth: species distributed depending on the climate
2) Solar shading / control of heating and cooling loads
3) Air purification
4) Growth of plants with secondary economic value, either as food or pharmaceuticals (medical plants)
5) Spatial effect of the customizable architectural form Social Impact We hope to revitalize the social aspect of the community as well as establish a new produce co-op in the near west side. We can acheive both of these feats through the revitalization of the vacant lots in the area. Little construction would be required yet the benefits would be incredible. In our new vacant spaces, we could:
Host workshops dealing with agriculture.
Teach members of the community how to care for the vertical garden.
Host students from surrounding schools for field trips Since the space is relatively open, it can take on a variety of programs, all while being surrounded by and constantly reminded of the garden and its implications on the community. Steps to Take A library of vegetation 1. Seek out open lots.
2. Contact owners of surrounding buildings for compliancy
3. Assemble scaffolding units.
